To those of you who showed up for the February TSS call, it was great to connect live and hear your voices (or at least see your names on my screen 🙂 ). For those of you who were unable to make it – here’s a quick summary of what went down after we wrapped up our regular group self-reflection ritual of rating our ability to catch and untangle the 6 Root Causes of Self-Sabotage:

Hot Seat #1 (and only): Started at roughly 45-50 min. into the call. @Shae Jansen filled out a HSPF (Hot Seat Prep Form) requesting help with pinpointing a “Point B” that would both feel doable (and relieving) AND put her on a better track financially. She also wanted help pinpointing the actions that would help her reach this new Point B. She had already reached her previous Point B goal, and now it was time to set her sights on a new mile marker – only she was struggling to find one that didn’t leave her feeling fearful and resistant.

*Note: ANYTIME your Point B leaves you feeling anything BUT hopeful and relieved, it’s not a true Point B. It’s more like a Point C, D, or E – and it needs to be simplified, toned down, and tightened up a bit so that you truly feel stress and self-imposed pressure leaving your body as a result of coming to this new picture of your Point B.

We chose not to delve too deeply into the strategy/marketing/business side of this Shae’s Hot Seat, as that was better left to a Mastermind call. However, we did touch on it ever so briefly… and then again, at the end of class, @Kraig Ward stayed on the line a bit longer to take a crack at helping Shae with her tracking (meaning, the way in which she tracks her time investments, actions and results). He explained a tracking system we’d built and used internally (and used to provide to students in our sister brand, the Mindful Marketing Academy, back when Kraig ran that business). So you may find value in listening all the way to the end of the call to hear that discussion.

But back to the bulk of Shae’s Hot Seat… it went towards facilitating the “picture painting” of her Points A and B. While we use the same questions every time, no matter who it is we’re talking to, to help them define their Points A and B – these are the same questions in the Overwhelm Eliminator AND in the untangling solutions for Root Cause of Self-Sabotage #3 – there are always some nuances in this process that are helpful to pay close attention to. This is true whether your goal is to play coach for YOURSELF or someone else.

Suffice it to say, we went way down that rabbit hole, as deep as we needed to go to get Shae back to feeling hopeful and relieved again. Along the way, we found a few “Outer Child” behaviors that were making it tough for Shae to get to this clarity on her own. If YOU, too, have had a tough time deciding upon a true, realistic and clear Point B, this is a great call to listen to, take solid notes on, and most importantly IMPLEMENT.

Thank you, Shae, for showing up to get clear. Your example will no doubt be so so helpful for many others out there in similar situations.

As always, everyone, you can count on the call archive showing up in your members area within 24-48 hours and, shortly after, you’ll also get an email letting you know the archive has been posted.

Remember, the Mastermind Class is next Wednesday, 2PM ET AND the Work It Class is tomorrow, Feb. 11th, same time. Mark your calendars and get thy booties there! If you need some help with strategy, vetting your ideas, prioritization of tasks, marketing critiques, or anything of that nature, send in your Mastermind Hot Seat Prep Form anytime after this coming Friday the 12th.

Between now and the next time you join us on a live class, please use the Facebook group to post your questions, comments and feedback. Do your best to fully make use of the Bhakti Buddy System and keep plugging away with your coursework at a pace that works for you!

We hope you continue to love BEING here as much as we love HAVING you here. Enjoy the rest of your week.
